Love at First Sight

Folder: 
Love Blossoms

From the first time
I laid eyes on you—
this tiny little bundle
sleeping so soundly—
I knew I was in love.

And I know when
your eyes meet mine,
my heart will be yours.

You will have me
wrapped around your
teeny weeny finger.

How quickly and deeply
I loved this precious baby.

From the first time
I laid eyes on you—
this tiny little bundle
sleeping so soundly—
I knew I was in love.

And I know when
your eyes meet mine,
my heart will be yours.

You will have me
wrapped around your
teeny weeny finger.

How quickly and deeply
I loved this precious baby.
